          Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Base Coat:

          I use this on my toes because I'm not a big nail color girl. This has lasted in the summer heat, at water parks, even having my 5 year old "running over" my feet in his power wheels. I'll be back to get more.

          This helped the main nail polish stay on, but the polish did still chip. I'm not sure if this product has to do with that.

              Polish still peeled off within a couple days. I was very disappointed since it had such good reviews.

                Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Base Coat:

                I am always trying new nail polish but hate the way it chips. This base goes on easily, dries quickly, and works well with the polish and top coat. I'm impressed considering this isn't Ann expensive brand.
